Liverpool, the only senior side unbeaten in home games, are sure to put their best foot foremost to prevent Bolton spoiling their card, and a win to-day would place them above their midland Cup rivals, though the Wolves will have two matches in hand.
The race for leading places is likely to be very close in the remaining months of the campaign and Liverpool ought to strengthen their position this afternoon. The Wanderers were not engaged on Saturday and they will be fresh for the fray. They have won 23 points for matches against Liverpool’s 29 points in 25 games.
Owing to Berry Nieuwenhuys, their outside right, being injured in the Cup game with Stockport County, Liverpool play Jones, the former Wrexham player, who has previously filled he position this season. The kick is at three o’clock.
Liverpool. – Dirk Kemp, Jim Harley, Bernard Ramsden, Matt Busby, Fred Rogers, Jimmy McInnes, Ron Jones, Phil Taylor, Willie Fagan, Jack Balmer, Harry Eastham.
Bolton Wanderers. – Stan Hanson, Danny Winter, Harry Hubbick, Harry Goslin, Jack Atkinson, Jack Hurst, forwards from Albert Geldard, Tom Grosvenor, Thomas Sinclair, George Hunt, Don Howe, Frank Marsh, Alf Anderson.
